Stayed for 3 nights. All in all a nice place to stay but there is nothing to do in the area in forms of entertainment. No Pool. No fitness area. They do provide continental breakfast of the limited variety. Small place in quiet neighborhood on a main street. Very close to airport. Choose this location for that reason and that... More

I stayed here a while back following my arrival in San Fran late at night (1am) on a flight from the east coast. The location is convenient, only a short but expensive cab ride (20 bucks for an 8 minute ride) from SFO. The night clerk was very helpful, and when I got to my room the TV wasnt working... More

When writing these review thingys, I really try to be objective and give the benefit of any doubt. Having worked in the hospitality/hotel industry myself, I am sensitive to accommodating the guest with what they requested and what they are paying for as well as providing "above and beyond the call of duty" in terms of service, whenever possible.

We stayed here while visiting family in San Bruno. It's plenty clean, but not deluxe or exceptional. The motel has been upgraded, the electric outlets are in weird places that indicate the rooms weren't always the way they are now. Our room needed: a second luggage rack, more towels, a guide to cable TV channels, and directions about controlling the... More

Nothing fancy but a very solid hotel conveniently close to SFO. An excellent, reasonably priced place to stay if you're departing at zero dark thirty. Friendly, helpful staff. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

We had a late-arriving flight from the East Coast and needed a place in the ariport area. We had rented a car and were looking for free parking also. Presto--- Gateway Inn! Make no mistake: this is a very modest place, and its price (quite reasonable) dictates its amenities (quite modest). There is a modest continental breakfast at which one... More

The reason for my stay there was an overnight to get a good night's sleep on my return from Italy so I could catch a flight to Seattle the next day. I chose it because of the Airport Shuttle--very good, and the breakfast--hardly worthwhile. It was cereal, toast, cheap wrapped sweet rolls, coffee and oj. It was a real let-down... More

Every time I'm in the San Francisco area I always chose to stay here. It is very efficiently run with great service. Employees are polite and helpful with everything, especially with directions. I loved the location because I didn't have to put up with looking/paying for parking like I would probably have to in the city of SF itself. The... More

Had a very bad experience at this hotel, first the parking spaces were very narrow always a struggle to park when the lot if full, breakfast was horrible no proteins just carbs and more carbs. The last straw that broke the camel's back was a theft that happened in this hotel, 2 pairs of my wife's shoes were stolen from... More

We chose to stay here because the rates of hotels located near or downtown san francisco are mostly expensive. Good hotel near airport, restaurants and grocery stores. Bed was comfy, TV with good number of channels, towels and toiletries are included in the room. A breakfast is served but with limited choices of cereals, pastries and bread with different spreads...
